Welcome to ICODA!
In 1973 while teaching at Northwestern University, I realized that Deaf and Hard of Hearing children had few opportunities to develop their creativity and talents to help them grow into self-confident, independent adults. It was then that my dream was born and turned into a lifetime crusade to provide the children with quality experiences in the arts. I wanted them to learn that they had much to contribute to the world and that by working together great achievements could occur.
